Description: In order to achieve our dreams of entering the 2nd dimension, we will be working together with the original creators of Spice and Wolf to create a VR animation. Anime will evolve from something that is “seen” to something that is “experienced”. Kraft Lawrence is a traveling merchant who meets Holo, a beautiful woman who can transform into a wolf. As they travel together they face many hardships, such as having to walk in the rain. In order to avoid the sudden downpour, Holo and Lawrence take shelter in an old, abandoned water mill in the woods. They huddle around a small fire and enjoy a slightly strange but relaxing time together. You are able to share that time together with them.

Review: The first thing that has to be talked about here is the visuals. This is probably THE best looking “experience” on the Oculus Go. With smooth animation and stunning scenery, it is a treat for the eyes. Sadly at £18.99 it is definitely NOT a treat for the wallet or the hands as there is very little gameplay here. If you have read and enjoyed the popular graphical novel Spice and Wolf before you will probably go nuts for this, but most people will just enjoy the visuals. Sure, it looks good and is definitely worth playing, but its hard to justify at its current price unless you are a MASSIVE anime fan.
